(Ibo. V, MellimiK,
No inoro llttlng timo Uian the
present could bo selected In which
to devote a few words to ourselves.
Now that tho great national struggle
is over and victory perches proudly,
dlllantly on our banner, tho smoke
of battle will clear away and the
common every-day ivd'airs of Ilfoiud
business will iinsmiio .their even
tonor. The Capital Journal
wou thu buttle but our extreme
luodenty will not penult us to dwell
nt length on that topic. Our hump
of Holf-esteem, howuvcr, is sutHclciit
ly well tlmvloptnl to allow uh to say
that the Journal Is gaining friends
and iitrous every day.
It is true, our past career luva been
a rather clicckured one. We
changed management too often,
perhaps. But It Is of tho present

Uecf cattle aro now selling in
Portland for two and a half cents a
pound, gross. Now, how does this
pan out. Take a 1200-pound steer,
and the farmer gets for him friO.
And what does the butcher get?
Kairly fattened, the steer will pio
duco fifty pounds of tallow, and a
hide weighing sixty pounds. Tho
dreased carcass will tango about
fifty-seven pounds of clean meat
out of ovory one hundred pounds
live wcight;aud this gives six hun
dred and eighty-four pounds of
rough tallow at live cents makes
two dollars and a half for tallow.
Tho sixty pounds of hide at six
cents makes three dollars and sixty
cents. The head, tongue and feet
will bring tlfty cents; orforthe hide,
tallow, etc., six doilais and sixty
cents. This will pay the butchei
for the time and labor taken to
slaughter, dress and sell the beef,
and a proliton thu money invested.
Tho carcass would, therefore, if
tiiero was a fair divide, cost til"
retailer at his shop, tho sum of
twenty-threo doilais and forty tents.
Now tho retailer cuts it up.
Ranging from porterhouse down to
chuck, tho cutter will make half the
carcass into steaks, averaging in
prlco about cloven cents a pound.
That makes for three hundred and
forty-two pounds of steak, the sum
of thirty-seven dollars and sixty
cents. Then there remains the
balance of the carats?, three hun
dred and eighty-four pounds, which
Is cut up into roasts, boils, Btcwsand
soups, and sold on an average of
say tlvo cents per pound; and wo
havo for tills last item tho sum of
seventeen dollars and ten cents.
Now summing up all these items,
wo find, that for tho steer for which
tho farmer received only thirty
dollars at tho end of three years care
and fiod and pasture, tho butchers
get out of him in tlioso three days,
tho sum of sixty-one dollars and
thirty cents. Wo do not know
exactly what the wholesale butchers
hero charge the retailers, but it is
probably more than wo havo
allowed. Hut that does not help
out tho farmer at all. Tito way the
business la now organized tho
farmer has not much chance, to get
his Just share of tho prollt on the
steer; for It Is very clear that the
farmer ought to get more, or tho
consumer ought to get hoof for less
money, N. V. Farmer.
Tm: Charleston Nowsand Courier,
edited by a member of the dem
ocratic national executive commit
tee, prints a double-leaded editorial
on Harrison, under tho bead "What
of tho South V" "It Is evident," the
Journal says, "from utterances sinco
tho election, that there Is less desire
than ever before to dragoon the
Southern states. There are conserv
ative inllucutvs' at work. Many
millions of Northern and Western
capital are already Invested In tho
South. Tho conclusion' wo havo
come to Is that Southern people
havo little reason at present to fear
extreme measures tm the art of
Oen. Harrison or of congress, and
Southern people themselves South
ern democrats otui strengthen by
ther conduct the hopo of continued
peace and progress. "

A ciKKTr.KMAN who holds a very
important otlico under tho state
goveruhiont has lung thought that
Blaine wanted to bo senator, and
he uow wiys: "I urn still positive
thatBUino Is still looking toward
thu wouate, and I shall continue to
think so until ho accepts something
else. I know Just before his de
parture ho told n prominent repub
licuu that ho would be please! to
outer tho Houato ami T dou't bollovo
he Iihh clwugvtl hU uiltid."
But little will soon be left of
General Harrison's personal, prem
iscs, at the present rate tatySfujcii

It is worthy of note to '-ee how
general and genuine is tho sorrow !
over tho departure of the young i
mistress of the White House. Mrs. I
Cleveland was a favorite with all
who knew her, and she was widely
known, too. She lias been the re- j
